    Hold on there, swarfega - I may not be a "granny", but I am 80 years old and take some issue with your inference about the ability of "old" people.

    Wow, so that make you a grampy then?? Hey I am only teasing ya, I am just a young 65 year old. But I don't care how old a person is, having some tools on your OS to check and defend against virus's and pup's IS NEVER a bad thing!!! Programs like Malwarebytes, and HitmanPro or others like these are just not for in-experienced users, old people, kids, at all. Its for anyone who wants to have the needed Tools on their machine to protect, or check their computer for malware or virus's. I know lots of VERY experienced members on here, that have some of these same programs. I see nothing wrong with added protection if that's what a person wants to have.

    My guess is that a good Dns such as ConnectSafeDns or OpenDns, uac keep on alaways and Defender especially under Windows 10 is enough to avoid any issues.

    Guess again, some people that I know could disconnect from internet, lock themselves in an empty room and still catch a virus !!!

    Wouldn't believe how many infestations I had to clean on computers not on internet. Worst offenders are USB sticks plugged into school computers and ones that carry them to printers and photo developers.
    Here's a good small program that I activate when somebody brings USB stick: MCShield ::Anti-Malware Tool::

    About your experience are those infestations caused by zero-day virus or well-knows ones?



    Inho these results about Defender are very good for "widespread and prevalet" threats at least

    There are 20, 30 and 40 year old men and women who know nothing about basic safe computing; worse: they don't give a damn. Check out their smartphones and what they do there. Granny bashing is sexist and mean spirited.
